FSC CERTIFICATION - FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL

What is FSC Certification?

Forest Management Certification gives the public reassurance that timber products originating from a forest are managed in a responsible and sustainable way – something that is becoming increasingly important.

Responsible and sustainable forest management has become a vital issue over the past decade.

Inadequate and improper forest management practices are threatening the long-term viability of many forests and this significantly reduces their economic potential, resulting in negative social and environmental impacts.

Public awareness and the demand for certified timber products is growing, and Forest Management Certification gives the necessary reassurance that timber products originating from a forest are managed in a responsible and sustainable way.
